Just How Brave are YOU?

We talk a lot on the Ruby-Slippered Sisterhood blog about writing, and I think we can all agree that writing a book, putting it “out there” and watching people read, review, throw your book into a trashcan takes a certain amount of bravery. Okay, so I don’t know that someone threw any of my books […]

Ruby Release: The Sweetest September by Liz Talley

Welcome, friends, to the party I’m throwing for myself. Presumptuous of me, huh? But, oh well, today is a great day to celebrate, Friday and all that, so I figured why not throw a release party and invite all of you? The Sweetest September is my 13th book, and I’m banking on it being lucky ’cause […]

It’s Hot in Here: Researching Fire Fighters

Honestly, I can’t believe it’s July already…and I can’t believe I’m facing the start of another book. My fifteenth Superromance. Yeah. Crazy. So I pretty much thought by this point, I’d run out of ideas. It’s been a constant worry – what if the story ideas just stop? But, like most of you, something triggers […]

It’s Easy to Give Advice

So the other day after killing myself in Zumba class, I headed toward the exit of my gym. To the left of me is an area where several older people gather to have coffee and donuts (I know!) after they work out. It’s a busy area and they never fail to make me smile. Well, […]

What I Really Want to Say on Twitter

is buy my book. Truly. I’ve tried being witty. I’ve tried joining conversations. I’ve tried book blurb tours, giveaways, blogging six ways to Sunday, and going to reader conferences. I’ve bought book marks, reader trading cards, given away books, giftcards, and a kidney (okay, not an actual kidney but lots of heart-shaped things). I’ve advertised, […]

Give Me Just One Reason

Ah, as I pen this post I’m surrounded by the sights, smells and sounds of the holiday season. Several weeks ago my husband and I climbed into the attic and trudged down with a bajillion boxes of Christmas decorations. There were wreaths, two trees, outside lights, centerpieces, stockings and fancy trappings of a holiday that […]

From Superromance to Novella: Learning to write short

Ah, writing long…I’ve become most familiar with the idea (and in my head I’m accomplished at it).When I sold my first Superromance, the word count was a doable 65K. That particular length is perfect for writing a tight single storyline romance. Secondary characters can make appearances and there can be plenty of internal and external conflict. I loved […]

Ruby Release: His Brown-Eyed Girl by Liz Talley

Today marks the release of my eleventh Superromance – His Brown-Eyed Girl. I know. Doesn’t seem that long ago and it was just my very first book. Time flies when you’re busy writing Rather than talk about the book, I’m going talk about some of my favorite ways to make my writing pop…or rather deliver […]
